HAC Bulletin -June 21, 2022
• Aviation Security Exemption C2022-054 Repealed
In discussions with the Federal government the following points need to be highlighted:
This is a suspension of the Vaccine Mandate but should the COVID 19 situation worsen the mandates could be reinstated.
Mask mandates are not affected;
If a crew member or passenger has COVID 19 they are still not permitted to fly, this remains unchanged from previous guidance from the Regulator;
This suspension comes into effect June 20, 2022 at 00:01 EDT;
If you have COVID 19 documentation that was previously required to be submitted or retained (ie non-compliance reports etc.), this documentation still needs to be retained and actioned as per the requirements of previous or alternate Regulation;
All Provincial regulations, guidance, and requirements remain in effect. Therefore the most stringent regulation whether Provincial or Federal would still need to be complied with;
Please distribute this information to your respective team members so they are aware of the upcoming changes to the vaccine mandate.
